In my opinion, the best WWII grand-strategy game system.

As with most of the World in Flames expansions that just add more stuff than rules, I think you should use them all or none of them.

Another expansion to World in Flames, Africa Aflame has two major components -- a map of Africa at the Asian map scale (otherwise, Africa south of the North African coast is depicted in the abstract with "off-map boxes"), and a countersheet. With the map of Africa, you can have small side campaigns. If using a popular house rule for Vichy France, you often see Italian units charging down from Libya to occupy French colonial capitals. Otherwise, the map is nice IF you have space for it, but not crucial.

The countersheet introduces several new classes of units. One is the territorial, corps-sized units that reflect local levies that are weaker than regular military units, but have some advantages when operating in their home country. Territorials are included for lots of countries, from the Philippines to Italian East Africa to the Netherlands East Indies. The sheet also includes synthetic oil plants that major powers may build -- expensive, but often worth the cost, particularly if playing with optional oil rules.

This kit came with Territorials and an African map to replace that silly off-map box, which I, of course, quickly replaced.

Another supplement that is really necessary to round-out the basic game.

"WiF" add on. It replaces the African off map boxes with map which can add a dimension to the Ethiopian campaign but it detracts a little from the core of the game.

Pour ceux qui ont toujours rêvé d'avoir des supplétifs et construire des fortifications. Un petit plus pas indispensable (contient une carte de l'Afrique à l'échelle asiatique).

Nothing major here, just scattered add-ons (plus the Africa's map). Haven't tried territorials though (and I'm referring to the old, 1993 version).

Not worth the hassle. Overcomplicating the game for little gain. Optional ressource rules utterly crazy.

A natural addition to WiF--and a bad idea that makes the underlying game worse, not better. Very glad that WiFFE jettisoned it and reverted to improved map boxes.

I don't remember what additional counters come with this expansion but the Africa map doesn't really add very much to enhance WiF play. Use it if you have the room but you probably won't miss much having the action outside N. Africa abstracted away.

feature creep, added units slow down the game and make the defender too strong. convoy system broken, no real addition to gameplay.
